​The World of the Dinosaurs

This song is by John Boswell.

(Dr. Alice Roberts)
How can we start to come close to animals that lived hundreds of millions of years ago?

Dinosaurs
(Jack Horner)
Dinosaurs
(Bill Nye)
Dinosaurs
Di-Di-Dinosaurs

(Dallas Campbell)
Dinosaurs weren't just giant lizards
But a truly unique kind of reptile

(Narrator 1)
Dinosaurs roamed
For more than 150 million years
Dinosaurs roamed
In amazing shapes and sizes

Very few left evidence of their existence
And those bones never cease to fascinate us

(Roberts)
The more we find
The more complete our understanding
Utterly awe-inspiring
The world of the dinosaurs

(Campbell)
There are always new discoveries out there
Waiting to be found

(Narrator 2)
Tyrannosaurus, the largest flesh eater
The world has ever seen
Dinosaurs - all the dinosaurs
Followed a well trod trail to oblivion

(Narrator 1)
Rock layers span the age of dinosaurs
The deeper the layer, the older the rock

At the top - rock from the Cretaceous
Below that, the Jurassic
And near the bottom, red Triassic badlands
When dinosaurs first appeared

(Dino breakdown)

(Nye)
65 million years ago
(Nigel Marvin)
A meteorite smashed into the Earth
(Nye)
Hurtling toward our planet
At a hundred thousand kilometers a second (**correction: per hour, not second)

(Roberts)
If we'd never found their bones
We wouldn't ever have known
These ancient animals ever existed
